This opens with enticing scents of blue flower, ripe dark-skinned berry, new leather, vanilla and sandalwood. Elegant and full-bodied, the palate delivers crushed raspberry, wild cherry, truffle and chopped herb, while intense licorice notes linger on the long finish. Fine-grained tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. Drink through 2025.

The 2013 Chianti Rufina Riserva Bucerchiale is a fantastic interpretation with seamless balance and carefully measured intensity. The wine opens to bright cherry and cassis aromas that are wrapped within a delicate veil of balsam or Mediterranean herb. The mouthfeel is silky and long with a good amount of power to move it smoothly over the palate. Selvapiana shows excellent results in this vintage.

A host of dark red cherry, iron, plum, smoke, licorice and dark spice infuse the 2013 Chianti Rùfina Vigneto Bucerchiale. Pliant and dense, with tightly wound tannins, the 2013 is going to need at least a few years to unwind. There is plenty to look forward to for those who can wait. Despite its mid-weight structure, the 2013 packs quite a punch to match its decidedly virile personality.

Sweet wood smoke, plum and cherry flavors pervade this dense red, which mellows with air, finding a nice harmony and lingering on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2026. 4,500 cases made.
